I breastfed each of my boys for a long time several years a pop! There it will be: a fat yellow drop of milk out of my right boob. Kind of like the colostrum I could express at the end of each of my pregnancies.
WHETHER you're thinking about getting a boob job or have already had one, the ability to breastfeed your child is something that can weigh heavily on women's minds. While a boob job shouldn't affect your chances of breastfeeding, the nature of the surgery does risk damaging your milk ducts. For instance, an incision around your areola can potentially damage your nerves, milk glands and ducts.
Ultrasound studies by Dr Peter Hartmann and team at the University of Western Australia have shown that although healthy breastfeeding women produce similar amounts of milk over a twenty four hour period, breastmilk storage capacity can vary up to three times as much between individual women.

By Linda Geddes. When a woman stops breastfeeding, her breasts go from being full-time, milk-producing factories to regular appendages, in a matter of days. Now a molecular switch has been identified that controls their transformation from milk secretors to cellular eaters that gobble up their dying neighbours. The discovery could provide new insights into what goes wrong in breast cancer.
There are many reasons why you may want to quickly dry up your breast milk supply. This process of drying up breast milk is called lactation suppression. Whatever the case, weaning slowly and without stress is best for both you and your baby.
I was 34 weeks pregnant with my second son and had already started lactating on my right side when I first noticed a lump in my right breast. While breastfeeding my first son, who was 2 and a half years old by this point, my right breast was my hero boob.
